Teacher of RE job summary

We require a Teacher of Religious Education to cover a maternity leave. The position will be temporary for one year and full time (although consideration will be given to part-time requests). Applications are welcome from ECTs as well as experienced teachers.

There is a strong emphasis on raising achievement in innovative ways based firmly in research and a genuine commitment to collaboration and professional development at Severn Vale. This is a school that believes in ‘growing great teachers’. We have a very high staff retention rate and believe that our focus on staff - who are our greatest asset - is one of our strengths. To enable our teachers to thrive we have:
• no centralised teaching and learning policies, but increased time for departments to develop subject specific pedagogy
• no “Ofsted speak” at all – we do what we do for our students and the school community
• a firm belief in “more feedback, less marking”
• limited data collections (once a year following summative assessments)
• a research and coaching based culture
• a centralised behaviour management system with high levels of support from senior leaders and superb pastoral teams
• time and space for staff to develop in a way which suits them as individuals

Interviews will be held on Friday 10th June 2022.
